Longfields and dirty 30's are made by the same company in the USA.

There goes the warranty, pretty sure that trail gear will not be as friendly with returns.

Did you forget to read the press release? "He has assured me the warranty will stay in place and remain the same"

We should take a look at the past to see the future, dirty thirty had a lifetime warranty in the beginning. So I will keep my opinion!

I'd have to agree on the warranty deal, I'm sure they will honor the warranties at the printed level but not at the Bobby Long level of service.

I saw this earlier.  I was a little disappointed, had my mind set on Longfields.  Not sure what axle to go with now when the time comes.

I just saw this article online and was going to post it when I saw this thread, WTF?! I'm glad I got my axles before Bobbys passing, however the reason I bought those axles was due to their excellent service and warranty.  I feel like I'm holding the winning ticket to a bankrupt lottery.  This is bad, very bad.  I hope I can find my receipt as I'm sure that will be the only way to warranty them with trailgear.
